As I have previously discussed, the key to a successful contemporary design is clean lines and simplicity. Let’s take a look at how that was accomplished with the appliances in this kitchen.
At first glance, you may only notice the oven as an appliance. The cook top blends into the counter top so seamlessly that you may not even realize it is there. The hood makes a beautiful statement as though it is a contemporary piece of art, not a source of ventilation. Two refrigerators are designed to look like a wood hutch at the end of the room. This could easily have been one refrigerator and one pantry cabinet had the client preferred more storage and less refrigeration.
Imagine for a moment if the refrigerators had not been built-ins, if the cook top had been a stainless steel model, and if the hood had been a more traditional shape. Yes, the client would have had a nice, functional kitchen but they would not have gotten this sleek, contemporary beauty! This is a wonderful example of choosing the appliances not only for their function but how well they work into the overall design. Nicely done!
